Palliative care is not just about care in the last days and hours of life, but about ensuring quality of life for both the person and their family at every stage of a life-limiting illness from diagnosis onwards.

Palliative and end of life care are important aspects of the care provided by health or social care professionals to people living with and dying from any advanced, progressive and incurable condition.  Strathcarron Hospice staff support other professionals in this aspect of their role as well as providing a wide range of services to support those with the most complex needs.
